Celebrate the grittiness and style of film noir at a beautiful 1925 movie palace -- the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale -- with a double dose of films featuring car chases and gun-toting dames aplenty. In Gun Crazy, a man becomes obsessed with a sharpshooting femme fatale, leading them both down a dark road of armed robbery, car theft and murder. This essential film noir was filmed on location in Los Angeles, including a bank robbery scene shot in nearby Montrose. The Lineup, set in 1958 San Francisco, stars Eli Wallach as the maniacal leader of a gang in mad pursuit of a group of innocent tourists who've had heroin stashed in their luggage. The Lineup was directed by Don Siegel, who would go on to direct such high-profile films as Dirty Harry. Learn More

My husband and I had never been to the Alex before and always wanted to go. It's a beautiful old theatre. We enjoyed the movie, but even more the cartoon and newsreel. It was a lot of fun and we will definitely go back again for this kind of programming.
The Philadelphia Story (1940, M-G-M)
A witty, sparkling adaptation of Philip Barry’s Broadway hit, The Philadelphia Story was the comeback success for Katharine Hepburn who, just two years earlier, had been labeled box office poison by Screenplay Magazine.
A classic romantic comedy/farce of love and marriage, class distinction and redemption, the film earned Jimmy Stewart his only Best Actor Oscar™ along with an award for screenplay and four other nominations including best picture.
Director George Cukor received outstanding performances from Hepburn, Stewart, Cary Grant and Ruth Hussey.
The Philadelphia Story is a perfect Valentine’s Day treat for lovers.
